Galway is an attractive and historic city in the Republic of Ireland, situated in the province of Connacht, on the country's western coast. It is also one of the most important Irish university hubs outside Dublin, with two higher education institutions and around 22,500 students.
Galway has a proud history and retains a large number of unique medieval buildings and heritage sites. These contribute to its popularity with tourists, many of whom are also drawn by the city’s vibrant festivals and entertainment events drawing on its rich tradition of Irish music and literature.
Postgraduate students in Galway have the opportunity to live and study in one of Ireland’s most attractive and popular cities, with access to high quality and internationally renowned degree programmes. Galway’s many heritage sites and events provide a wealth of opportunities for extra-curricular exploration and entertainment.
Whilst studying a Masters in Galway you can also take advantage of your time in ‘Ireland’s Cultural Heart’ by learning some Irish language, or perhaps taking lessons on a traditional instrument from one of the many instruction programmes available in the city – after all, there’s more to an interesting international CV than degree qualifications (though those are important too).
The oldest and largest university in Galway is the National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway), founded in 1845. NUI Galway is part of the federal National University of Ireland, but operates independently, with the freedom to design its own training programmes and pursue its own research agenda.
In addition to NUI Galway, Galway is also home to Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT), one of Ireland’s Institutes of Technology, providing high quality professional training and technical programmes.
Galway has strong business sectors in ICT, maritime and creative industries. Several large ICT companies maintain offices in Galway, including IBM, Cisco and Oracle.
